Animals often communicate with one another using multiple sensory modalities (e.g. simultaneous visual, acoustic and olfactory signals). Such multimodal communication can modulate neural and perceptual processing, increase the likelihood of receiver responses, and facilitate the transfer of complementary information. The overall aim of this PhD project is to use alarm signalling in coral reef fish (i) to investigate the relative use of different sensory channels and (ii) to explore how multimodal communication is affected by various global pollutants.
Prof. Andy Radford will be the Principal supervisor of this project, with co-supervisors of Dr Steve Simpson, Biosciences, University of Exeter and Prof. Nick Roberts and Dr Christos Ioannou, School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol.
